Please note there is no support at present for 64 bit versions of Firefox 5.0 .... http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/5. ... uirements/

Please note that while the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows Vista and Windows 7 can be used to run Firefox 5, only 32-bit builds of Firefox 5 are supported at this time.

Note also that the release of Firefox 5 marks the end of life (EOL) for support of Firefox 5. (Mozilla retires Firefox 4 from security support). Also, although this is about Enterprise use of Firefox, based on Asa's remarks, we can expect the same version upgrade with the next accelerated releases.
Firefox 6 will be the EOL of Firefox 5. And Firefox 7 will be the EOL for Firefox 6.

BTW, in case you missed it, the "Do not track" option is opt-in. It is located on the Privacy tab in Options.
